Gunnar Nylund (1914–1997) was a Swedish ceramic designer since the 1930s, best known as the artistic director of Rörstrand. Nylund was a well-established ceramic artist in Denmark (Bing & Grøndahl 1925-28 and Saxbo in 1930-32). Nylund worked for Rörstrand from 1931–1955, the majority of the time as artistic director. He became well known for his new matte feldspar glazed stoneware in hare’s fur and crystal glazes and for his stoneware animal sculptures. In the early 1960s, Nylund returned to Copenhagen and started producing stoneware for Nymölle Keramiska Fabrik in Lyngby.
